If it is Prof.B.Jeyifo who is the author of the book:Modern African Drama:Backgrounds and Criticism (Norton Critical Edition), then l want everyone to believe me if l say it is a masterpiece.It is a companion for all students of African Literature, both foreign and African and they must make sure they get copies and to be able to understand the man more, l want to suggest every student of African Studies must read Prof's other books. l enjoyed his delivery recently at the Dubois Centre in Accra, Ghana when he was the Discussant at the Efua Sutherland Memorial Lectures.Prof. Jeyifo is an African through and through.
